For more than fifty years, Karl Lagerfeld has remained a formidable force in the fashion industry and has taken the reins of numerous iconic houses, such as Chloé and Fendi. Behind the dark sunglasses, the polished suit and the flawless hair behind the international fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld was an incredible human being. Karl Lagerfeld, one of the world's most acclaimed fashion designers, was born in Hamburg, Germany.

KARL LAGERFELD is committed to providing you with the best possible shopping experience, whether you shop online or in-store. Considering the impact that Karl Lagerfeld had on the fashion world, it's surprising to hear Stefano Tonchi say that he rarely thought of his friend as a fashion designer.
